Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs: The Foggy Mountain Boys

Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs were both known for their bluegrass band The Foggy Mountain Boys. They have recorded many songs and albums.  Before they formed the band Flatt was part of Bill Monroe’s bluegrass band. He eventually left the band in 1948 to form The Foggy Mountain Boys. They have released 27 albums from 1957 to 1970. The band broke up when Flatt didn’t appreciate the changes that were happening in the group. He preferred that the band should maintain their traditional bluegrass style than adapting to the current music style during their time.

“Get in Line Brothers”

“Get in Line Brothers” was written by Lester Flatt and performed by the duo Earl Scruggs and Lester Flatt. It was the number 9 track on their album Great Original Recordings, which was released in 1965. Most of the songs were originally written by Flatt and Scruggs, except for the song “You’re Not A Drop in the Bucket” and “’Tis Sweet to be Remembered.” The album didn’t enter the Billboard charts and none of the songs in the album became a hit, however, Flatt and Scruggs did a good job in delivering traditional bluegrass music as always.

The Meaning of the Song

“Get in Line” means following the right path. The song is like an invitation to choose the right path. It reminds us that there is always a chance for us to turn our backs on all our sins and follow the line that leads to righteousness and happiness. The song recommends following God because it’s where you can and will find peace, comfort and be away from danger.  Since God is home, it’s better to follow the way to Him. God will always give us a second chance to change ourselves and do what is right. Therefore get in line brothers so that we can return home safe and sound.
